't say tonight that that tax bill he vetoed raised taxes only on the rich and gave the rest of you a break -- but he vetoed it anyway. i offer a new direction. invest in american jobs, american education, control health care costs, bring this country together again. i want the future of this country to be as bright and brilliant as its past, and it can be if we have the courage to change. [applause] >> president bush, your opposing statement. >> let me tell you a little what it's like to be president. in the oval office, you can't predict what kind of crisis is going to come up. you have to make tough calls. you can't be on one hand this way and one hand another. you can't take different positions on these difficult issues. and then you need a philosophical -- i'd call it a philosophical underpinning. mine for foreign affairs is democracy and freedom, and look at the dramatic changes around the world. the cold war is over. the soviet union is no more and we're working with a democratic country. poland, hungary, czechoslovakia, the baltics are free. take a look at the middle east. w
. governor romney says he would bring relief to the middle class. >> i don't have a $5 trillion tax cut. i don't have a tax cut that you're talking about. we should provide relief to the people in the mid class. high income people are doing just fine in this income, they'll do fine whether you're president or i am. the people having a hard time right now are middle income americans. under the president's policy middle income americans have been buried, they are being crushed. jon: mr. obama with this argument. >> the fact is that if you are loring the rates you describe, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only affect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burden evening the middle class, it's math, it's arithmetic. jon: today it's back to the campaign trail. mr. obama in denver, and then to wisconsin. governor romney is in virginia where the most recent "real clear politics" average shows president obama leading with 47% of the vote, governor romney with 44. virginia has 13 electoral votes up for grabs. that's wher
leader with the ability to take on the tasks at hand. to balance the budget, to expand the tax base, to give our children back the american dream. the candidate is ross perot. the issue is our children. the choice is yours. host: from 1992 when he ran his first of two independent bids for the white house, falling short in 1992 and 1996. one viewer says we need to listen to all points of view. we need third parties. one question is the role of third parties in politics. here is ross perot. >> you ran twice. you established the united we stand and the reform party. do you feel that is needed today? is there something wrong with the two party system that has gotten more acrimonious. >> it is almost impossible to do it. it would be a very healthy thing if you could get it done and make it happen. it is very difficult to do, and very few people would want to try to do it because they know they will be butchered from day one. much of the media will participate actively in that. host: the whole interview conducted by richard welfare's tomorrow evening at 9:00 eastern time -- richard wolf t
biden. [video clip] >> they voted against extending the middle class tax cuts. why? because they were holding it hostage to make sure they could continue their tax cuts. and romney adds another tax cut with a total cost to the economy of $1.70 trillion. it is $250,000 a year in additional tax cuts for those same 120,000 families and anybody making more than $1 million. >> all these promises were made on the idea of hope and change and it sounded pretty good to people. but when the rhetoric went aside and the time to act occurred, the ideas are the old idea that a failed time and again. borrowing and spending and regulating and taxing and printing money, all these things do not lead to prosperity and. all these policies say take power from people, many from families and a successful small businesses and job creators, ascended to washington and then they decide. that does not work. host: that's a taste of the vice-presidential nominees over the weekend. they will go head-to-head on october 11 in their only official the bait. let's stick to your calls. will the vice-presidential candidat
. they should pay taxes. then we should have some kind of clear pathway. it does not mean the front of the line. we can make whatever requirements we want. but we cannot continue to stick our head in the sand. this is too important, too important for our state. if we do not do anything, we will have the same discussion. >> mr. cruz, do you support a path to citizenship for the 1.6 texas? >> i do not. and let me say more broadly, i think there is a very clear divide. as i said before, i commend mr. sadler for running as an unapologetic liberal. illegals. i do not. he supports obamacare. i do not. mr. sadler has opposed second amendment rights. i fight for second amendment rights. >> what does that have to do with? he is going off on -- >> mr. sadler has championed on income tax and the state of texas. i oppose that. there is a sharp difference. that is good, becauseit gives texans a clear choice between what is right -- the right direction. >> so what would you do for the illegal immigrants here? do you see that as a problem? >> the texas home-building and restaurant industries are sensitive to
us more tax increases and more regulated debt. >> eric: talk about the real personal income and durable goods. that is, why? >> what we earn is important to our spending power and standard of living. we are down $4000. and that is real disposable income. and looking over the period of the president's term, we are down $4000 median per household . durable good orders. machines. cars and trucks and planes. down 13 percent. one month that is a decline and that points to recession. >> steve: seems like we are slowing down. over in trouble in europe and nothing on horizon. everybody slog down and america could leave the world out of america could expand and drag the world with it >> eric: personal income is down especially with gas at four bucks a gallon. >> national average 3.80. >> brian: fewer dollars to spend. >> we have food price inflation. our standard of living is declining. are you better off, no. you are not better off. >> steve: stewart i talked to a number of business owners and they were reluctant to hire. if mitt romney is elected president of the united states. wou
earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years. >> vice president biden just today, said that the middle class over the last four years has been quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states! [cheers and applause] gregg: republicans didn't waste anytime trying to utilize the biden remark, did they? >> we'll be hearing a lot about that over the next couple weeks. and i can assure you the white house wishes they could reverse time and get biden to say something, anything different from that. but you know, for those us in the press that is the nice thing about joe biden. he is always sort of ad-libbing and giving us great things to write about. gregg: that updates the biden gaffe clock that the rnc always run on their website. paul ryan seems to have recalculated the infamous 47% remark that, hess running mate uttered. take a listen to this. >> today, 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government in dollar value than the
they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. how in lord's name can they justify? jamie: stu varney the host of varney and company joining us. i listened to it and read tonight print, is in any other interpretation. report no, vice president biden got it absolutely right. that's an objective statement of fact. income down $4,000 in those four years. 54,000 down to $50,000. personal wealth, a lot of it destroyed in the housing crash. down 30% on home prices. then there is the american dream which is fundamental to middle america. that's not been destroyed. but many middle class americans no longer share that dream. so over 50% think the future will be worse for their children than it is now. so in the early part of the day joe biden got it right. the middle class has been buried the last four years. later in the day he tried to wash it back saying the middle class has been buried by the policies which ryan and romney supported. that's how the day ended. what percentage of the policies the president says he's been working t
in into record deficits is because we put two wars and two tax cuts on a credit card. we didn't pay for. and now mr. romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for. we're not going to let that happen. we are not going to fall backward, not with so much at stake, not now. it didn't work then. it won't work now. and that's why i'm running for a second term as president of the united states. i will tell you, i'll tell you what we need to move forward. we got to invest in small business. we got to invest in manufacturers creating jobs here in ohio, here in the united states of america. we have got to recruit 100,000 new math and science teachers to train to make sure our young people have -- to make sure our young people have the skills that they need. we got to train 2 million workers at community colleges to bring down college tuition cost s. we got to cut our oil imports in half and create thousands of new jobs and energy. we got to use the savings from ending the war in iraq and afghanistan, to pay down our deficit. put some people to work, doing some nation building right he
of evasiveness. i feel they have been dodging questions, not revealing their taxes, and not giving any alternatives to what obama has already proposed. from the obama side, i would like to hear the reasons why some of their positions and not been passing through the congress. host: this from don -- you can give us a call and tell us what you are looking for as the debate season commences. the baltimore sun has this piece -- dan barry, connecticut, keith on our republican line. caller: i will not be watching the debate tomorrow night. i have seen enough of the show that they put on and it's not real. the questions are staged and the moderators are chosen by the candidates. the questions are preselected. only certain people [no audio] they will disagree on a couple things to make some highlights in tomorrow's news. other than that, you have two of the same guys on either side of the stage in a choreographed event. there's lots of other strings that are choreographed on tv that would be a lot more entertaining than this staged event for a candidate that the gop forced down everybody's thr
pay taxes, they see me working hard and doing things i should be doing as a citizen. >> what this comes down to really is do you think voting say right or a privilege? if voting is a right, people who have paid their debt to society should be allowed to vote. demographics are changing, more of this rhetoric that voting is not a right but a privilege. it should really be outrageous to all of us. the very foundation of our country is that voting is a right. vermont and maine probably have the two smallest black populations in the country. unfortunately race has been a big part of this in the state of virginia, where she's from, when the law was put in place, when it was embed into the state constitution back in 1902, the person who was doing that was actually talking from the floor of that convention and i quote, because of this plan, darky will be zeroed out as a factor in our state's politics in five years. it was a very sordid racial had history. >> you're saying this is of a race issue than anything else? is that what you're saying? or is it -- >> i'm saying at its very ori
attention with these comments, discussing the gop ticket's tax plan. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> reporter: the romney campaign pounced on the word buried. campaigning in iowa, paul ryan fired back. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree. that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney the next president of the united states. >> reporter: later, the vice president did some damage control, clarifying his remarks. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported. >> reporter: 24 hours before the start time of tonight's debate late tuesday, conservatives began circulating a 2007 speech by then candidate obama speaking to an african-american audience about victims of hurricane katrina. fox news host sean hannity prominently featured the video as a gotcha moment. >> it contains some of the most divisive class warfare and racially charged rhetoric ever used by barack obama. >> reporter: nbc, along with seve
that the president often misrepresents his position on abortion, the auto bailout. basic tax policy, et cetera. mr. romney also plans to point out that the president has been saying, you know, well, some parts of the economy are doing okay and that the recovery is underway. here is mitt rom know camera one of those ads where he speaks directly to the people, no big music and pictures of others that sort of apple pie and motherhood stuff. this is mitt romney saying what he thinks. >> too many americans today are struggling, living paycheck to paycheck. more americans live in poverty than when president obama took office. >> and the follow-up to that the next line in the ad and the next line in the debates will be that the country simply cannot afford another four years. and this contrast that mr. romney is putting forth about what he refers to as the obama agenda's dependency society one which big government and debt continues to grow and people lose their liberty and opportunity as entrepreneurs and business people to make their own prosperity versus what is he promising less government, less debt
the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts to favor the wealthy. the fellow on stage last night said he did not know anything about that. [laughter] the real mitt romney it says we don't need any more teachers in our classrooms. [boos] don't boo, vote. [applause] >> some of the beginning of this rally this afternoon. about five more minutes of your phone calls, your reaction to the debate, what you saw in denver. columbia, maryland, on the independent line. >> good afternoon. just a couple of observations. i just watched obamas rally in denver. i just sat there thinking, wow, where was this guy last night? i really wish he had been a little tougher on romney. i think he had opportunity after opportunity to check him, but he didn't. but i still think in the end obama is going to win this. i just think the contrast is quite different. romney -- i sat there and listened to him tell a lie after lie after lie. people are not out on the news. they may not follow the news, or they may look at fox news and get all the information in there, but they should look at c-span, democracy
about their tax plan. so sean, we'll hold governor romney -- >> let me comment. [all talking at once] gregg: revenue neutral. that means zero. was asked about the math. twice said revenue zero. that is a zero. that is the digit. that is the math. >> is the math is how you get there. that is the math. >> plan on the website. go look at it brad. >> doesn't balance, sean. >> unlike the president --. gregg: we could go on and on. brad woodhouse, sean spicer, gentlemen thanks very much. >> thanks, gregg. jenna: the threat of a nuclear armed iran one of the big topics when it comes to politics and when it comes to foreign policy. the israeli prime minister sounding the alarm. we'll talk about the pros and cons withdrawing a red line with the rogue nation and talk about american leadership with a former advisor to six secretaries of state. he will join us next. >>> plus look at this. nature's wrath. a powerful storm tossing a car around like a toy. we'll tell you where.

percent of people in america who do not pay income taxes. paul ryan was on the trail today in iowa and turned it from a defensive problem for the romney campaign into the advance of the way they will frail the race in terms of the stagnation economy that they accuse president obama of overseeing and the prosperity economy they are promising. >> let's help them get jobs so they can get a paycheck so they are good taxpayers. (applause) this is the point that we have been trying to make. sometimes the point doesn't get made the right way. we don't want a stagnant economy that fosters dependency. we have added 15 million people to the food stamp roles in four years. largely there is no opportunity or economic growth. >>carl: that is the argument mitt romney hopes to make tomorrow night standing face to face with president obama. there has been mock debating today for mitt romney and stepped out if a quick snack and other than that it will be closed doors until the walk through tomorrow afternoon. >>trace: what about the 47 percent controversy. does governor romney have an answer do tha
about romney's economic plans. >> how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that has been buried the last four years. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years has been, quote, buried. we agree! that means we need to stop digging by electing mitt romney as the next president of the united states. >>> biden later tried to dig himself out of the mess by explaining that the middle class had been buried by policies supported by the republicans. trying to, yeah, dig himself out of that line. >> joe's always -- he's never dull. love him or hate him, he's always saying something interesting. and headline-worthy, interesting. everyone talking about the video released last night as well. conservative website dug up a video of the president speaking to an audience back in 2007. saying a racially polarizing, racially divisive speech, referenced jeremiah wright, the federal government's response to katrina, new orleans, seven years ago. so that could play a role in the d debait tonight. it may not. it's been the election so far, interesting
